My business colleague eats here all the time when he is in Chongqing. He took me there and I loved it! It was a little taste of North America while in Chongqing. I had the chicken fajita with about 4 icy cold draft beers. Both were excellent. The bonus was the fact there were no bones or beaks in the... More

Visited last May as part of a tour. None of us were enjoying the tour of Chonquing - the sites were all underwhelming and the pollution was taking its toll. We were tired hungry and thirsty and the Cactus Tex Mex was recommended as a quick fix of "Western" food! We all piled in - it was busy - usual... More

So what can you expect? I was starved for some Western food after three weeks of Chinese food at every meal. This was the closest place except for Pizza Hut. I ordered a vegetarian burrito (not sure if the refried beans in it were quite vegetarian, though), and thought it mediocre and mushy. However, this is probably the only Tex-Mex... More

The food is good and decent portion sizes, only downside is that it's pretty pricy, especially compared to getting local Chinese food in Chongqing.

Friendly Owners, great staff, decent selection of beers, food specials during the week, a variety of food...not just Mexican food.

I lived in Houston for a while, and this is on par with the Tex-Mex experience I remember. The Fajitas are really great.

The homepage www.cactustexmex.com says the place is open Monday - Friday 12-2PM. I arrived on a Wednesday at 1PM and it was closed. Complete waste of my time.

Discovered this restaurant from reviews here at TripAdvisor so needed to visit Cactus Tex Mex and we were not disappointed. Deserved reputation with great food, and great service. Our group tried the Taco's, Buffalo Wings, Fajitas and all food looked and tasted great. Only minor disappointment was the cocktails, the Margarita was weak (pale) with not much lime flavour.

Nice menu, good beer, great burrito. A really welcome change from hot pot! Highly recommended if you're in Chongqing and looking for a Western meal.

I finally found my way to Cactus Texmex and the place looked really nice; an artificial fireplace with two leather sofas, cozy padded stools on the bar and a pool table and chilly music playing in the background. The crowd was international: 1/3 locals and the rest were expats. Service was friendly and I could place my order immediately I... More
